I've made this thread because I'm curious to learn a bit more about application filtering. I often get the pop-up (Authorize/Deny) and it's rare I actually need to or want to deny. As it is now - I've only denied some Windows XP files which I didn't find necessary to give access. Let me know if this is correct: If I disable application filtering everything will have outbound access? Or is it (as I hope but can't get to work) -- that when disabling application filtering, the rules already entered will be used and any further outbound access will be denied?
